Snowmass Ice Age Discovery Center
Snowmass Ice Age Discovery Center Review
In 2010, a bulldozer operator stumbled upon some strange-looking bones near Snowmass Village. They were later identified as belonging to several ancient, large mammals, such as the American mastodon, giant bison, ground sloth, and camel. This soon became known as the best high-elevation Ice Age site anywhere. Displays at the Snowmass Ice Age Discovery Center detail the work that scientists from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science have done to unearth, catalog, and preserve the bones. There are some nifty hands-on activities for kids, too, including coloring sheets, skeleton puzzles, and a cozy book nook.
